Oscar-nominated actress Juliette Lewis quickly became one of the most recognizable names of the ’90s, breaking out with “Cape Fear” and subsequently headlining films like Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers,” Kathryn Bigelow’s “Strange Days” and Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.” But in the new millennium, Hollywood often played second fiddle to a new side project, a rock band titled Juliette and the Licks. Now, according to Variety, Lewis is looking to complete a documentary about her life on the road, with an eye towards debuting at the Sundance Film Festival this coming January.

While not particularly well-known by the masses, the Licks had a small but dedicated international fanbase over their six years, producing a number of albums and playing hundreds of shows. The band was created by Lewis and Hole drummer Patty Schemel (herself the subject of a recent documentary), and along the way picked up a guest appearance from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who replaced Schemel on the second LP.

When the band dissolved in 2009, Lewis launched a new venture call The New Romantiques, who have released one album since their inception. It’s currently unknown if the doc will focus on both bands, or just the more well-traveled Licks.

Below, check out one of the Licks biggest singles, “Hot Kiss.”

This week, Portlandia mayor and Twin Peaks‘ resident coffee and pie lover Kyle MacLachlan took over IFC’s Instagram account. The honorary municipal leader performed diligent social media service, supplying the world with candid on-set shots of himself alongside stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, as well as an inside look at what makes his fake mayor seem so perfectly suited to the hipster haven.

Through photos and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Kyle offered a taste of what he brings to the Portlandia set when he’s on the call sheet. Check out highlights from Kyle MacLachlan’s Instagram takeover below, and be sure to catch the new season of Portlandia Thursdays at 10P/9c on IFC. (Click here to find IFC on your TV in your area.)

1. “I’m standing with former mayor Sam Adams for the flag raising ceremony. Sam appears to be putting a whole new spin on ‘The Little Drummer Boy’.”

2. “Sitting with Fred, Jon Krisel our director, and the Mayor of Austin…who happens to bear a striking resemblance to the mayor of Portland. Coincidence? I think not.”

3. “This is where it all began. The office of Mr. Mayor and his red ball.”

4. “The script said the mayor was off the grid in the jungle as in ‘Apocalypse Now!’ I embraced my inner Colonel Kurtz and began…something about ‘a snail, crawling across a straight razor…’ then Willard, running in the forest. I was having the time of my life!”

5. “Sometimes a bedtime story is best told in the morning…while talking on a cell phone…in separate beds.”

7. “After a long day kayaking on the Willamette River, the mayor enjoys a hot shower. Actually, I needed a wet down so when I ran up to Fred and Carrie, my feet would make that squeaky-squishy sound.”

8. “The mayor, off the grid and taking care of goats, when Fred and Carrie find him. I didn’t know what to do, so I asked if I could use the beard hanging on the wall in the makeup trailer and then Amanda Needham, our costume designer, found the hat. Suddenly I was Amish. I have no idea why I spoke in a strange southern accent…”

9. “First season. The Mayor goes missing for the first time. He’s found weeks later playing bass in a ska reggae band. Moments before we shot the scene we added the soul patch. That’s improv folks!”
